Keydata rolls out new structured products plans

Keydata Investment Services is launching a new range of structured product plans in a bid to help financial advisers beat the credit crunch.

The Dynamic Growth Plan Plus is a six year plan enabling investors to exploit growth in the FTSE 100 by gearing rises. Investors can earn ten times the growth of the index subject to a maximum growth of 90 per cent of the initial investment. They can also benefit from capital protection linked to index performance. Isa transfers for the plan close July 4, 2008 and July 18 for all other investments.

The six-year Extra Income Plan is based on the FTSE 100 and Euro STOXX 50. It delivers investment income and capital return quarterly, annually or as a lump sum at the end of the term. The product has soft protection with a 50 per cent barrier level through Standard & Poor’s ‘A+’ rated institution. Isa transfers for the plan close June 27, 2008 and July 11 for all other investments.

The Defined Income Plan is an uncorrelated investment offered as an alternative to traditional income plans and invests in a bond listed on the Luxembourg Stock Exchange. Monthly and annual income and growth options are available over five, seven or 10 year terms. Underlying assets include a combination of cash and traded life policies. Isa transfers for the plan close July 4, 2008 and July 18 for all other investments.

Keydata director of sales and strategy Mark Owen says: “As FTSE commodities are pricing very well, there is an opportunity to create some very competitive structured products. These new plans will offer clients good returns as sensible core investments for their portfolios.”
